A close up of one of the five Limpkin chicks. Isn't it just adorable!
My guess is that this chick is only a few days old ... no more than a week at most. And already it is out of the nest and easily moving about.
Now I have to find out how they get their food i.e. by themselves like Common Moorhen chicks and Mottled ducklings, or are they fed by their parents like so many other birds are.
